Caligare Flow Inspector works under the all distributions of Linux
(Debian, RedHat, Suse, Slackware, etc.).
Currently Caligare's software is not developed for the Windows operating platform. The Linux
environment under which NetFlow software runs is considerable more stable and efficient,
increasing the performance of the software.

Minimum hardware requirements:
It is very difficult to recommend optimal configuration, because good server performance
depends on the amount of incoming netflow exports. Generally, there is an advantage in having
adequate RAM memory and fast access to disc(s), however we can help you determine your
needs depending on your specifics. The specification of your Caligare Flow Inspector
system depends on the number of routers sending netflow exports to the monitor,
as well as the level of actual router traffic. These are the optimal requirements needed
for the system to run.
2.8 GHz. Pentium IV
1 GB MB RAM, DDR 333 or 400 MHz
80 GB HDD with ultra ATA or in better choice SCSI disk
video card and fast ethernet LAN built in
These specifications will increase based on number of devices monitored. The highest computing
performance is put on the database system. Computing requirements for the other components
are lower than for the database system.
